FACE COVERINGS for public worship


Please wear a face covering when entering our church—there are spares available if you do not have one.



Faithful Lord,

whose steadfast love never ceases

and whose mercies never come to an end:

grant us the grace to trust you

and to receive the gifts of your love,

new every morning,

in Jesus Christ our Lord.



Please pray for those who are ill

We remember those whom we know,

who are suffering in sickness or adversity,

and those who especially need our prayers at this time.

Also the families of those who have died.


Parking in Church Lane

As you know parking in Church Lane is becoming increasingly difficult again, and people are finding it difficult to turn at the bottom. Please park considerately, pulled over as close to the wall of Springfield as possible,  so that there is enough room for people to turn. Also I have been asked to remind you to NEVER park parallel to the big green church noticeboard, as this makes turning almost impossible. The Parish Council are considering what might be able to be done to make parking in Church Lane easier.


Remembrance Sunday 8th November

We have had to submit a detailed risk assessment and plan to Public Health Wiltshire: our Act of Remembrance will be different to previous years - no hymns, no service sheets, no parade. People will be asked to stand in their households in marked areas on the road. If anyone is willing to volunteer on the day to steward, please could they get in touch with Janet (744458).


We are planning on there being an 8 am service of Holy Communion at Box, a 6pm service of Holy Communion at Colerne and a 6pm service of Evensong for Remembrance at Ditteridge that day, subject to all the guidance and regulations current at that time.
